This statement records the decision of the UK National Contact Point (UK NCP) about a complaint against the KPO consortium by the non-governmental organisation (NGO) Crude Accountability (CA).
The complainant alleged that the company’s actions did not meet the voluntary standards of responsible business conduct set out in the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises.
The UK NCP carried out an initial assessment of the complaint in December 2013 and subsequently offered mediation to the parties. An agreement could not be reached and the UK NCP examined the information both parties had presented. The conclusions are set out in this final statement.
A review of the final statement by the UK NCP Steering Board Review Committee has also been published. The NCP will issue a follow-up report in May 2019.
